no effect, as many had expected, from hurricane sandy. this all comes as we get word that the fiscal cliff talks will boil down to what happens between two people and only two people. president obama and john boehner. even all sides of the party are excluded. >>> with 25 days before taxes go up for nearly every single american, what effect will the jobs report have on the fiscal standoff? we'll get live remarks from john boehner who is going to try to use the jobs report to the republican's advantage. representative, let's start with the november jobs report numbers. they look very good, good news overall for the koirnlt tree. but speaker boehner said this, the democrats plan to slow walk our economy to the edge of the fiscal cliff instead of engaging in serious talks to avert the cliff, that includes spending cuts and tax reforms the president once supported. the white house has only offered a joke. i understand we have speaker boehner to the microphones. let's take a listen. >> when it comes to the fiscal cliff that's threatening our economy and threatening jobs, the white house has wast

-on embrace of president obama for helping sandy-ravaged new jersey came days before the election and had no noticeable effect on the presidential race but some republicans think christie didn't have to be that -- >> if it's a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to shut that whole thing down. >> a combo team from the say what categories, richard murdouch of indiana and todd aiken. >> even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, it is something that god swended to happen. >> dreams to take control of the senate in 2012 had dwindled throughout the year but aiken and murdoch pretty much shut that door in a couple of sentences. plan to prevent employers from hiring undocumented workers. >> people who have come here illegally won't be able to find work and over time those people would tend to leave the country or self deport. >> self deportation by undocumented workers was not by itself responsible for romney's dismal showing among hispanics, but certainly greased the skids. for which romney would have liked to have had aa mulligan, there was this. >> 47% of the people who w
there are fundamental lives at stake. when we filed this case, chris and sandy and jeff and paul had been together for ten years. now they have been together for almost 12, over 13 years. chris and sandy's twin boys were just entering high school. when this case is heard, they will be getting ready to graduate from high school. their moms deserve the same freedom to marry just as everyone else has in this country. and in this country we don't deny a certain portion of our citizens a fundamental right. we just don't. it's not american. >> isn't it true that when we had this in the court in the ninth in the appellate level, nobody came forward because nobody could come up with what you call a justification, some compelling reason. just chat on that point. you raised it. there's no compelling reason against giving the rights to people, the right to marriage. >> that's exactly right, chris. it's important to note in both of these cases, the united states government has refused to defend doma, the federal law that's now before this court, and when we filed the case right here in california, as one has
, of course, is can the outrage following sandy hook be sustained? i want to show a graphic that talks about sort of how we've covered these events immediately after they've happened. not just the sandy hook shooting, but the previous shooting of gabby giffords, et cetera, and this washington post graphic actually shows new stories about gun control. the aurora shooting and the representative gabby giffords shooting, but if you look at that kufsh, it quickly falls off in the weeks thereafter. as horrible assist sandy hook was, is there any chance with all the other news with the fess cal cliff, with everything else that, we can sustain the level of outrage long enough for a task force to produce legislation that can pass? >> i think if it was ever going to happen, it will happen now. we're seeing things we have never seen the president do, and we're seeing thing in congress we haven't seen quite at this level. i mean, the president for the first time in his entire time in the white house is actually talking about gun control, period. that alone is progress. the only things he has done to dat
sandy which obviously affected millions of people and really caught the public's imaginationment but it didn't end. coverage of other hurricanes h there is a beginning, a middle and an end. the fact is what sandy did or seems to have done is to take the idea of climate change from an abstraction, something that scientists and experts debated, to something that millions of people along the east coast and in manhattan and staten island and the other boroughs in new york city experienced for themselves and it started a debate. we don't know obviously what the long-term consequences are, but it does suggest there is something different about this story and its long-term implications. >> woodruff: and it's interesting, michael, because we've had big storms in this country before. >> sure. >> woodruff: but there was something different about this one? >> i think people are getting a little more alert to it politically. and one thing that historians of the future do is if something terrible happens, if climate change over the next 50 years or so achieve great injury to this earth, histo
to that? there was a bill introduced by the ways and means committee in the house, sandy levin that called for this legislation. the speaker was going to bring it up to kill it but he kobt kill it and then we moved to plan b, the debacle of all debacles. it's the mother of all debacles. that was brought up in an effort to send us something. he couldn't even pass it among the republicans it was so absurd. he meaning the speaker. so it's very clear now, mr. president, that the speaker's number one goal is to get elected speaker on january 3rd. the house is not even here. he's told me he'll give them two days to get back here, 48 hours, not two days, 48 hours. they don't even have enough of the leadership here to meet to talk about it. they've done it with conference calls. people are spread all over this country because the speaker is basically waiting for january 3rd. now, the president campaigned on raising taxes on people making more than $250 thou,000 a year. the bush tax cut will expire at the end of this year. obama was elected with a surplus of about three million votes. he won the el
their american citizenship so they do not have to pay any taxes in america. as far as these kids in sandy, my oldest daughter told me we are going to see lots more of these things unless kids are given a better future to hope for rather than being some rich person's slave. host: thank you for the call. guest: you are right. the rich, no matter what the tax level, they have a way of getting around their taxes. that goes back to the point i was saying. it is not about what level of rate we put taxes on individuals. we have to reduce spending them big she said obama has given in to republicans paying bank i am not sure what he has given in on. he has not been at the table and then he has been traveling all over the country promoting raising taxes on millionaires and billionaires and then doing their fair share. spending is causing this problem. spending levels and the debt is what is creating this poor economy and the recovery we have seen. obama's failed policies have created such a soft economy today. we have to start dealing with the spending the event we have to treat the problem. that is th
there was overwhelming interest. in the wake of the sandy hook shootings, many people said they wanted to buy assault rifles before a possible ban. >> say something should happen and we no longer have right to purchase our guns, that means somebody got off this butt and decided to change the constitution, that will open the door to a lot of issues. >> the f.b.i. reported a record background checks for guns this year. a lawyer for one of the survivors of the newtown school massacre says the state and connecticut didn't do enough to keep the kids safe. lawyer irving pinsky said the state failed to provide a safe climate for his client's daughter. to howard county where police say they've cracked a string of burglaries that hit homes in columbia and ellicott city. >> the alleged victim is concerned the man she accused of burglarizing her home will be on the streets again. this woman who asked us to conceal her identity lives in fear after coming face to face with a burglar at her howard county home. >> he knows who i am. >> police arrested kenneth william vollmerhausen and charged him with multiple coun
're still counting ballots like in new jersey and new york because of hurricane sandy, there were some ballots -- paper ballots they couldn't get in. every day the president's margin keeps growing to the point where he's got 51% of the vote now. mitt romney, 47%. 47%. >> i think president obama's the first democrat in -- since roosevelt to break 50 and he's broken it twice, right? >> the first to do it twice. i think johnson did it once. >> of course, johnson did it once. that's right. get somebody in here that knows something. not that you don't. >> hey, thanks a lot! >> not just the politics aspect. >> that's right. of course johnson did it. obama did it twice. >> bill: so it turned out despite all of the talk ahead of time about how close this is and real nail-biter -- it turned out to be an historic win for obama. >> but none of these states were -- what's really curious is what republican polls were telling -- pollsters were telling. i talked to paul ryan the other day. he really thought they were going to win.
